    Hello Friends,

    We have released a new version of Bforartists, Version 3.0.0. It is another milestone in the history of Bforartists.

    The binary downloads can as usual also be found in the download section of the official webpage. https://www.bforartists.de/download/
    The sourcecode can be found at Github. https://github.com/Bforartists/Bforartists/releases/tag/v3.0.0
    And the release note is here: https://www.bforartists.de/release-notes/

    Bforartists 3 Version 3.0.0 comes with all the changes from Blender 3. And lots of improvements for Bforartists. The constraints have now left aligned text too. The Ui and tooltips got further streamlined. The tabs in the tool shelf are now in other editors available too. The toolbar has some new entries. We have around 200 new icons for the geometry nodes editor. And all these nodes in the sidebar available. The asset browser has its first own workspace. We added some more matcaps. And a ton of small improvements and fixes. The small changes always makes the masses of the changes. A little improvement here, a little improvement there …

    All in all it’s around 340 changes in this release. Not every change is a change at the source code. We needed to fix github actions for example. This was also a very time consuming task. Github actions is the test compile to check if there are some problems in the source code.

    We have also a new experimental keymap with some vital changes regarding the brushes handling. The brushes hotkeys moved from F, in combination with holding ctrl, shift and alt, to X C V keys. And F is now Frame selected. No need anymore to release the mouse and press numpad 0 to put the selection in focus. Please test this new keymap for conflicts. These changes will most probably go into the main keymap with the next point release.

    Here you can find a pdf file with the vital changes between the default and experimental keymap: https://www.bforartists.de/data/tuts/experimental_changes.pdf

    Bforartists is a fork of the popluar open source 3D software Blender. With the goal to improve the graphical UI and usability.

    As with every release, and even more with this yet another milestone release, i want again to thank everybody involved for your support and help and passion for this project. It was me a pleasure 🙂

    Have fun with the new version – Reiner

    Wireframex, long time ago i have created by “text only” no printscreens a Softimage XSI Mod Tool version 6.01 basic pdf guide. I asked long time ago Autodesk to simply give me an email indicating that yes i can do printscreens of Autodesk softwares, but they have givin me some link to some complicated terms; when i simply just wanted a simple “yes” in my e-mail to protect my self for doing printscreens of there softwares. So the guide was just “text” telling click this at that place, then this at that other place; for doing this thing result.

    I also have created many free none official pdf guides about different softwares for different websites. “But not gonna talk about it here” by respect of this post. If you want to know more, if you want you can pm me here; gonna reply when i can. Also have created long time ago a BforArtists v2 none official pdf guide, posted it on some website quite a while; and i know it have reached more than 28,000 views. This thank’s from BFA for his help into BforArtists and the press kit that i could have, to do some background image design for the pages; of my free none official BforArtists pdf guide. Talked onto:
